Hide instructors ability to restrict access to reading lists based on time intervals
In Leganto, instructors have a lot of opportunities to restrict access to the reading list by setting specific time intervals where resources are visible. This includes separate settings for entire reading lists, sections, citations and uploaded material. We have received reports from our libraries that these functions are sometimes used incorrectly by the instructors. The instructors often do not grasp all the consequences of using these features and end up causing these resources to become unavailable at inopportune times and not knowing why. For instance, an instructor might set the reading list to be visible from August 10th – December 20th not realizing that students might want to access the material during the summer break leading up to the course term.
Some instructors end up using them because they think it is required, which can cause a fair bit of confusion.
A change that would allows us to hide these different functions, or otherwise make it so instructors cannot use them, would be beneficial.
